St Mary’s Artist Asked To Exhibit In Birmingham

Local artist, Stephen Morris

A St Mary’s artist has been asked to display his paintings of the islands at an arts venue in his home city of Birmingham.

Stephen Morris, the artist at Porthloo’s Glandore gallery, has previously exhibited his work at the Botanic Gardens in Edgbaston, Birmingham in April 2009.

And after the success of that last solo display, he’s been asked to put his work on show again.

Stephen Morris talks about his upcoming exhibition

Stephen will compare and contrast images of our islands with ink sketches from a recent trip to Iceland in “Islands of Sun and Ice”. He says the two locations share common themes because of their island status and high degree of self-sufficiency and says the showcase offers good publicity of the islands.

Steve says he has been quite focussed on producing pieces to take to the show, most of which were made around St Mary’s.

He says the two sets of images make a striking contrast between the dynamic environment of Iceland and the gentler scenery around Scilly.
